ACME Four String Business Card Case - design by Stanley Clarke

Exploding into the jazz world in 1971, STANLEY CLARKE was a lanky teenager from the Philadelphia Academy of Music. He arrived in New York City and immediately landed jobs with famous bandleaders such as: Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Pharaoh Saunders, Gil Evans, Stan Getz, and a budding young pianist composer named Chick Corea.

Clarke recognized the opportunity to propel the bass into a viable melodic soloist role and was uniquely qualified to do just that. He single-handedly started the 1970s “bass revolution,” paving the way for all bassist/soloist/bandleaders to follow.

Clarke has won literally every major award available to a bass player: Grammys, Emmys, gold and platinum records, walks of fame - you name it. He was Rolling Stone’s very first Jazzman of the Year, and bassist winner of Playboy’s Music Award for ten straight years. Stanley Clarke became the first bassist in history to headline tours, selling out shows worldwide, and have his albums certified gold.

The word “legend” was used to describe Stanley by the time he was 25 years old. His artistry has spanned classical, jazz, R&B and pop idioms. He has already succeeded in a multitude of diverse careers, any one of which would be satisfactory to anyone else. Yet he still pushes on, as invigorated and as passionate about music as that teenage prodigy from Philadelphia with a dream.
